    I have a Micargi Pantera GTS bike and I need to remove the pedal arm so I can heat it and bend it out. Attached are some pics showing a nut or race with two slots in it. I tried turning it with a small chisel and hammer but not getting it to turn very much. Is there a special tool for this? Any parts breakdown I can look at on the net? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    I just use a blade screwdriver and a hammer. I think it may have a reversed thread but I cant remember, just try turning it each direction with a hammer and blade screwdriver (or simular)

    It's a left hand thread so turn the nut clockwise to loosen.
